A 20-point scoring outburst in the second half fueled Washington’s fourth straight win as the Pam Pack topped Southwest Edgecombe 27-14 on Friday in an Eastern Plains Conference matchup.
Markel Spencer had touchdown runs of 52 and 43 yards, Stevie Green had an eight-yard TD run and Jamond Ebron returned an interception for a score to lift the Pack’s record to 6-2 (2-0).
“It was a big win for us on the road,” Washington coach Sport Sawyer said. “I thought the guys played hard. The defense kept them out of the end zone for the majority of the game and the running game worked real well tonight.”
Spencer’s first TD gave the Pack a 7-0 first half lead. Spencer would score again in the second half, but it was Ebron’s 56-yard pick-six that turned the tide for the Pack.
“At the time the score was 14-6 and they were at about midfield and the defense made a huge play,” Sawyer said. “(Ebron’s touchdown) made it 20-6. That takes a lot of life out of teams when you get a defensive score like that.”

Plymouth 54, Perquimans 6
The Plymouth ground attack continued its assault on opponents as the Vikings had four 100-yard rushers in their 54-6 win over Perquimans on Friday.
Markus Webb rushed for 198 yards and threw for a TD, while Demarkus Price gained 107 yards and scored twice, Chad Danced rushed for 100 yards and Demetrius Davis exploded for 107 yards and two scores.
With the win, Plymouth has now won 20 straight games and is a perfect 6-0 (2-0) on the year.
Southside 38, Jones Senior 34
The Seahawks rebounded from a heartbreaking loss to Northside in the Anchor Bowl by puling out a thrilling 38-34 victory over Jones Senior in a Coastal Plains Conference matchup on Friday night.
Southside (3-5, 1-1) jumped out to a 30-20 halftime lead and was able to hold off a late charging Trojans team for its first conference win of the season.
The Seahawks has a huge game on the ground as Isaac Harrell rushed for a team-high 104 yards and a score on 17 attempts, while Dylan Lewis gained 92 yards and scored once on 18 carries.
Lawrence Brown led Southside in scoring with two TD runs and gained 72 rushing yards.

Riverside 56, North Edgecombe 14
One week after not completing a single pass during its win over Northampton, Riverside completed six with three resulting in touchdowns to top North Edgecombe 56-14 on Friday.
Clay Wagner went 4-6 for 107 yards and threw two TD passes, while J.J. Wilson was 2-2 for 30 yards and a score.
Ziree Rodgers, Ross Byrd and Daniel Everett each caught a scoring pass while Stephan Allen and Wilson both ran for one.
The win upped the Knights record to 5-3 (2-0).
